Diode Simulation : "explosion current"

Question asked by johnlack on Oct 6, 2013

Dear all,
        I'm simulating 8 diodes with Harmonic Balance, and it's taking too long. While the transient simulation took "only" 2-4 hours, this simulation is still going (it has been at least 22h ... I fear for the calculator), and it's still attempting to find solutions for the 5th diode explosion. I would like to know what is the "diode explosion" and, mainly, how to decrease the simulation time of the circuit, even if it reduces the accuracy of the diode models. If you have some suggestion or hint, please help me. 
Thank you,
